I have been a little quiet on the blog this week. Still learning to juggle my fitness schedule, the new kid classes, my volunteer work, house, family, choreography and oh yeah, sleep. The problem is I am so blessed with so many things I want to do, it is hard to focus and narrow down what is important in that moment. So I have slowed down to speed up. A saying my husband and I tell our kids a lot.
I started blogging to be able to write and share and inspire others. I am so grateful for all the positive feed back. Looking over my posts, while I happy with my content, it is lacking in the writing dept. No worries, fun coffee memes, inspiration, move of the day, food will stay but more posts about me and my life will be added as well, starting with today’s Halloween recap. So let’s dig in.
It has been a super fun week of Halloween inspired fitness classes, beginning with my Special Needs Zumba class Monday. They came in costume, we did some fun Halloween favorites in class like I’m Your Boogie Man and Thriller. The Thriller train did not end there. It pulled into Zumba Tues, Zumba Gold Wed, Special Halloween Zumba class Wed night and made its last drop off at Cardio Drumming Thur morning. There have many costumes this week, Black and Orange, I wore my Awesome Grandma shirt. Been Wonder Woman. Wrapped up with TuTus and tiaras at Barre Fit. By Halloween I was costumed out and passed out candy in pajamas. Overall a super fun week full of laughs and lots of smiles.
A Halloween post would not be complete without a picture of my granddaughter on her second Halloween being her adorable self out tricking or treating for the 1st time. Seriously the cutest flamingo I have ever seen.
I hope you had an amazing week and made some memories with family and friends.
Please share how your week went.
Happy Monday! This week out Move Of the Day will focus on different ways to use a plyo box. You can always use a step, bench, whatever you have handy. You can adjust the intensity of this move for your fitness level and goals
Looking for a way to level up your triceps extension? Grab a body bar. The challenge keeping the bar even will make both arms work equally hard.
Workouts are always more fun with a partner! They help motivate you and keep you accountable. Grab a weighted ball, squat and toss to your partner.
Today’s Move of the Day is a Bulgarian Lunge to Side Lunge using a chair. Modification is lunge to a side lunge using the chair for balance. Either way, all you need is a chair to add this move to leg day.
Happy Tuesday! Hope you all enjoyed the long weekend. Time to get back to working on those goals. #moveoftheday is a way to level up your push-ups. Slam ball to split push-up. To modify, squat with ball then step back into a plank.
Today’s Move Of The Day is a Kettlebell Figure 8 in a Squat with an Upright Row between sides. Keep your chest up in the Squat and keep the Kettlebell chest level in the row with your elbows out to the sides. Have a happy workout.
Today Move Of The Day: Lunge with a Bicep Curl to a Plank Jack. To modify you can start with no weight and then start with a plank, then add taps to the side to build up to the jack. Need to make it harder, up your weight, add extra jacks in the plank.
Getting back into my work routine, loved all my classes this week. Had a relaxing 4th with family and friends. Now, #moveoftheday is back! Today, Tricep Dip to Crab Touch. Make sure fingers are pointing towards you, bend at the elbows and straighten arms to really target your triceps, then reach opposite hand to heel. Modification, just lift one leg at a time and leave both hand on the floor.
